past City Councils. It is the
fierce pride of this policy board
which motivates its asking for
these kinds of powers," he says.
But before the question of
policy board power and struc-
ture is decided, the board must
first deal with the question of
i t s o w n representativeness.
There has been a flurry of
c h a r g e s and denials and
counter-charges concerning the
board's c o m p o s i ti o n, which
should be resolved at the April 8
Charges that the board was
not representative of North
Central area residents climaxed
when a petition signed by rep-
resentatives of eight North Cen-
tral area organizations was filed
with council on March 4, al-
though only two will remain on
the petition. Council had unani-
mously approved the board on
The organizations claimed in
their petition that they were not
b e i n g represented or were
under - represented. They also
claimed they had been given
inadequate notice of when the
meetings to establish the board
would be held. 1
Thomas Harrison, a Negro
Ann Arbor realtor who muster-
ed the petitions, says, "The
Democrats, by saying the board
Councilman LeRoy Cappaert
(D-Fifth Ward) agrees w it h
Wheeler. "To deny the policy
board is to deny for all the
citizens of Ann Arbor the chance
to redress the grievances of in-
ner-city problems nation-wide,"
he says, "It will be 'urban re-
moval,' not 'urban renewal,'" he
"The conditions which cur-
rently exist are a product of the
planning and administration of
was community consensus, mis-
led the City Council and are
misleading the Negro."
But since the submission of
the petitions, four of the eight
organizations have asked that
their names be removed from
the petition, stating that they
had misunderstood the intent of
Of the four that remain,, one
has said it will withdraw from
the petition and another signer
represents only an individual,
not his organization.
Rev. Anthony _ Robinson of
Saint Paul's Missionary Baptist
Church, says he was going to
withdraw his name from the
petition and ask his parishioners
not to attend the hearing. "I'm
going to instruct them not to
go," he says, "and believe me,
they won't go."
"I'm not trying to block the
Model Cities program," he adds,
"I just don't want to press this
any further. If they decide to
reorganize the board, I'd be
glad to be a part of it."
James Crawford, exalted ruler
of Elks Pratt Lodge 322, claims,
"I signed the petition for my-
self, not for the lodge. The lodge
doesn't care to get involved."
The two remaining signers
are Naomi Chapter No. 12 oft
Eastern Stars, and the Foun-
tain Church of God and Christ.
Councilman Cappaert calls
the hearing "a very serious mis-
take" of the Republicans.
"They had a board and had
agreed unanimously on it. Re-
publican councilmen wanted to
reconsider the board, but didn't
have the guts to change their
minds or make a motion to re-
constitute the board," he says.
"Instead they decided to pit
black against black by calling
for a public hearing."
Connelly claims he called for
the hearing out of concern for
the representativeness of the
board. "As more and more
groups came to council, I got
more and more concerned," he
says. "If affer the public niear-
ing the majority of the people
want the board constituted as it
presently is, then we should
Cappaert says he regards the
groups who complained of the
present board as only a small
minority of the North Central
Other Democrats agree. In a
statement issued last week,
Rowry condemned the Republi-
can majority on council for ap-
proving the public hearing. He
agreed with Cappaert that the.
proposed hearing is an attempt
to destroy the effectiveness of
the program by "demanding
that black people do battle with
each other on April 8."
He says the Republicans
would appoint black people to
the board, "who seek to better
themselves at the expense of
their own black brothers."
Councilman H. C. Curry (D-
First Ward), a candidate for
re-election on April 7, issued a
statement last Wednesday say-
ing that the Model Cities pro-
gram "puts the people of Ann
Arbor on trial."
"Delays in setting up the
board make me think there
are people in city government
here who are trying to under-
mine the program," he stated.
Curry said the board is repre-
sentative of the North Central
area community, that it na-
turally represents those organ-
izations "who have worked hard
for the community before and
who are "becoming involved
"Even so," he added "we
have attempted to protect the
concerns and interests of other
groups by giving them a voice
on the board."
To set up the Model Cities
Program, residents were notified
through the Community Center.
Workers from the center began
calling neighborhood groups and
speaking with residents of the
program last August.
In November, Jesse Hill, a di-
rector at the center, was assign-
ed to develop further communi-
cation on the program.
The program was to be or-
ganized through the Human
Relations Commission, but ob-
jections by Harrison-represent-
ing the Workable Program Com-
mittee-brought the program
On Jan. 15 and 23 Hill sent
letters to residents and neighbor-
hood organizations to inform
the area of the Jan. 27 council
meeting which was to discuss
the make-up of the policy board.
Council encouraged the North
Central community to set up
their own board. Hill notified
residents of the Feb. 5 com-
munity meeting, circulated 1,000
flyers, and asked area churches
to announce the meeting at
Rowry says two of the four
petitioning groups did receive
written notification. He has
photostatic copies of letters to
Nonetheless, the petitioning
attacking the policy board stated
that "the unpublished sequence
of events (leading up to the se-
lection and approval of the poli-
cy board on Feb. 5 and 10 was
probably too hasty."
At the Feb. 5 area meeting at
the Community Center the pres-
ent board was elected by a un-
animous vote. Of the 64 votes
cast, two were abstentions---
one of them by Harrison.
The board has 17 members;
at least 10 must be area resi-
dents--four of them must be
renters; three are mayoral ap-
pointees. Non-resident property
owners of the area can not be
on the board.
Predictions on the hearing set
for April are shaky at best. Most
Democrats will boycott the
meeting to avoid a 'clash they
think is unnecessary. And peti-
tioners may attempt to stack'
the meeting by pulling in as
many close associates as pos-
But no matter what happens
at the hearing supporters of the
board do not appear ready to
change theT minds.
Dr. Walter Parker, a member
of the board, says, "The way
board members were selected
seems to be fair. The board rep-
resents the Model Cities com-
munity. It's more representation
than we're going to get from
